Kunitz is playing his best hockey at age 34. He now has 17 goals, nine shy of a career high, and he has 31 points in 31 games. He's never been a point-per-game player before but there's no reason to think that this can't be sustained now because he's playing with the best in the game in Sidney Crosby. James Neal had the other marker. Matt Niskanen picked up two helpers.
